Jurgen Klopp’s first game as Liverpool manager has come and gone with the new Reds boss remaining undefeated in his fledgling English career so far having drawn 0-0 away at Tottenham Hotspur for a point on Saturday.
With the game not being the best for the neutral with the game going through several largely dull periods, Liverpool could’ve won the fixture on another day and Klopp remained upbeat in his post-match interviews focusing on the fact the boys did a good job.
With our resident Reds fans in the tavern knowing that their side can do a lot better in the months to come, Klopp also reaffirmed the club’s fans and media that he can’t give a precise date for which the Reds will be firing on all cylinders, maintaining he needs time to craft Liverpool into a dominant force again.
In tenth place right now with 13 points on the board, Liverpool are only four points off the top four at present and with the league being more wide open than it has been in recent years, grabbing a string of victories must be the plan now with the Reds up against eighth-placed Southampton at Anfield next.
Having to call on Divock Origi from the start against Tottenham on Saturday due to a late knee knock for Daniel Sturridge to add to Christian Benteke’s loss and Danny Ings’ career ending injury, the Belgian often looked lost at times but with the first two players set to return against the Saints, our Liverpool fans are wondering whether Klopp will play two up top going forward.
To place greater emphasis on this potential plan going forward, we’ve devised what we believe to be the best Liverpool XI with Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke both included from the start.
